Now that the fashion world is going gaga over the Cannes Red Carpet looks ans Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is receiving compliments (less) and criticism (more)..
I couldn't stay untouched and unaffected!!
This you guys is my first ever attempt at recreating a look so pardon me if you find things a lil' off :P ;)
I found her second day look as the best out of all and thus thought to give it a try!!
For putting up the look together, I hunted my stash high and low. Few lip colours had a similar shade but the matte texture was lacking..
And finally this Lime Crime Dupe in Wicked came to the rescue!!
I don't have an original Lime Crime so I cannot compare it with the real one. BUT guys...this is aaahhhhmmmaaaazing!!
It glides on smoothly, applies super creamyand dries to a matte fininsh. Its pretty similar in texture and pigmentation to the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams or the Miss Claire Matte Lip Creams.
These are highly pigmented and the staying power is awesome..5plus hours easily!
It does mention the ingredients and rest of the details but I cannot vouch for their reliability since they are dupes only.
The shade Wicked is a mix of deep maroon with brown undertones..kinda oxblood...I know that's confusing but that's how it is :D
And this is how it looks on me!!
I got mine from Ali Express but these are available here through Facebook and Instagram sellers at a much much higher (more than double) price.
It was a first attempt..hope you liked it :)
